Great display I had for the great AVG BG "Tex" Hill. Only set of minis ever made for "Tex" that included his newly awarded DSC and some of his ultra rare Chinese medals. "Tex" used this to promoted his book.
"Tex" loved this display.
Thanks for looking and enjoy.

It is with a sad heart that I announce the passing of a long time friend. BG "Tex" Hill was a great aviator, soldier and friend. He lived a long and productive life. He was 92. He will be buried in San Antonio, Texas.

I had the great honor of putting togather a poster/backdrop for his book tour over the years. It was even a greater honor to accept it back from him to have forever. The mini medals on it was the only set ever made for "Tex" that included his DSC

Rest in peace my old friend. You will never be forgotten. A true american hero!!

I met Tex Hill many years ago through Ed Rector (who preceeded him in death), a friends from here in Northern VA. Tex certainly was an interesting gentleman. I am sorry to hear of his passing.
